Hi, i train kickboxing primarily and i do lots of bagwork with punches..

It sounds like tendonitis. An inflamation injury. Rest and ice is the best prescription. Non-ballistic exercise such as a fireman's carry can benefit that joint. Just grab a medium set of dumbells and hold them hanging at your side for as long as you can. Do two or three sets a couple or three times a week. This exercise strengthens and stretchs the small muscles and connective tissues that stabilize the elbow.

That has happened to many a grappler I know at less than half the age. It's all about taking care of your body.

To the OP: As stated before - rest and ice your arm up. If you can not imagine going a day or two without training, then concentrate on techniques with the other arm. The really bad thing about aggravation injuries is that they set in over a long time and they usually take a while to heal.

Here's a piece of advice you should take to heart: If you're still in the same boat after a week of rest and rehab, go see a doctor. None of us (even if we were fully licensed physicians) would be able to correctly diagnose anything over the net. A doctor could only do that in person.

make sure your using good form and not fully extending your elbow all the way. Same with kicking. For a while when i was younger i was totally off form when I was kicking the heavy bag. Now every once in a blue moon i'll get hip pains when I train.

when i do bag work, i use alot of power, especially from my right hand (crosses)...usually, i extend my right arm as far as i can when i punch the bag, so i guess im punching THROUGH the bag, to get maximum power..could this be why im getting joint pain on my elbow?
atm, it only hurts slightly when i snap it forward, but ideally, i want there to be no pain :/
